This module focuses on response of the nervous system to injury focusing on the peripheral nervous system and spinal cord. Detailed organisation of the peripheral nervous system, spinal cord including pathways and relevant higher brain structures will be covered. Pathological mechanisms and plasticity of the system will be examined. Topics will be covered in the context of experimental studies to develop understanding of current research strategies in the laboratory and clinic aiming to lessen effects of such injuries and facilitate neural regeneration and functional recovery.
